M41A1 Pulse Rifle is perfect for a bughunt – in short, controlled bursts

I can’t believe Aliens is 25 years old. I’m not sure Giovanni Tuzzi built this life-size M41A1 Pulse Rifle to celebrate the movie’s anniversary, but it’s certainly awesome.


Giovanni’s rifle includes several working functions, including triggers, cocking handle, pumping grip, and removable magazine.


Andrew Lee has set his talented hand to some aliens in the style of, well, Alien. I think that H.R. Giger would be proud.

Make sure to note the fantastic technique used on the tail (you can see it wrapping around the right side of the rock). Also note the inclusion of the tiny mouth emerging from the alien’s mouth, a detail often overlooked in Aliens creations.

Colonial Marines APC & Power Loader from Aliens, by Larry Lars

Larry Lars has been on a bit of an Aliens kick lately.

His Colonial Marines APC is the latest in a long tradition of LEGO creations inspired by this awesome vehicle, but Larry’s version has some excellent turrets and sweet angles.

The Power Loader looks ready to take on the alien queen.

Aliens UD-4L Cheyenne Utility Dropship by Havoc

The concept of a dropship has always fired my imagination — especially after seeing Aliens way back when. Havoc seems to share my fascination, as demonstrated by this fantastic rendition of the UD-4L Cheyenne Utility Dropship:

Naturally, the missile pods folder into the dropship’s fuselage:

While we’re at it, here’s Havoc’s Aliens APC. Though it’s not to the same scale as the dropship, it’s still awesome:

M577 Aliens APC by Havoc

Aliens remains one of my favorite sci-fi movies, in large part because of the awesome (though mostly futile) hardware the Colonial Marines throw at the aliens. Havoc‘s version of the M577 APC is chock full of awesome:

This bad boy even has a full interior:

The Aliens movies have spawned quite a few posts here on The Brothers Brick over the years:

Giger’s Alien brought to life by Arvo

If you thought Arvo’s Chestburster sculpture was awesome, their newest work is just stunningly amazing. The Arvo brothers have created HR Giger’s Alien in its frightening entirety. This magnificent horror sends shivers even down my spine.

We hope Arvo will have more pictures uploaded soon.

EDIT (AB): And thanks to reader Carlos for sending us a link to the Hispalug thread announcing this fantastic new creation! Nannan just got to it before I did. ;-)
